Directions

  1. In pot cover green beans with water and boil till tender with potatoes and bacon (or ham hock); drain.
  2. Add your favorite seasoning (I like butter, salt, and pepper).
  3. Remember ham hocks take a little longer than green beans, so if you use a ham hock, boil it first till tender then add the rest and cook. I personally never use ham hock due to fat content--I usually just use the bacon strips. I only listed it here as it was in the old south recipe.
